I know a lot of people who don’t like their jobs. I know some that can’t stand their jobs. I know a few who can’t even bear to get out of bed in the morning they hate their job so much. You know what I wish? I wish that every single person who is just … Continue reading Thought Experiment
I came back from vacation with this idea: I need to get fit. More fit. This will involve keeping up my workouts with Tim, running the steps, doing what I call the “Killer Hiller”—a steep uphill climb behind Hemlock on the MU campus. But I also realized that, in addition, I could leverage my ordinary, … Continue reading Leverage This

I read a stat recently that said that 60% of Americans are overweight. From my beach chair vantage, I’d say that’s about right. The people … Continue reading Watching Bodies at the Beach
I’m on vacation. Here’s what my vacation looked like this morning: Here’s what it looked like a few hours later: I’m on a crowded beach in Rehoboth, DE. It’s 100 degrees. It’s “Where’s Waldo?” out here. Family dysfunction is on full display It’s probably the last place you’d expect to find me (your yoga teacher) … Continue reading What’s a Vacation?
